Novel By-Words

Youngest daughter (YD) and youngest son (YS) were playing Star Wars Monopoly. YS plays strategically, and had loaded the equivalent of Boardwalk/Park Place with the equivalent of hotels. YD eventually landed on one and went broke. Oldest son (OS) was making soup in the kitchen nearby.
YD: "You cheated!"
YS: "No I didn't!"
YD: "You're not supposed to load up one set of properties like that! You cheated!"
OS: "No he didn't."
YD: "Yes he did!"
OS: "You're just saying he cheated because you lost, you Al Gore."

No, Gore is not a frequent topic of conversation around the house.

and no, YD had no idea whom OS was talking about.
